One of the ads being run by Barack tries to marginalize McCain for his age (known as ageism in current vernacular) by pointing out that he doesn't use a computer. This seems to be a mistake.

The National Revew Online and other Republican-leaning websites said the charge was unfair, citing several articles, including stories several years ago in the Boston Globe and, that indicated injuries McCain sustained when he was a prisoner of war in Vietnam prevent him from using a keyboard.

McCain suffered broken bones that still prevent him from fully lifting his arms and has lost mobility as a result of fractured fingers.

Just goes to show, you've got to be careful when you're spreading prejudice.
